    Abstract

    Infrequently, intracranial neoplasms metastasize to extracranial sites. In 1963, Glasauer and Yuan reviewed the 88 reported cases of metastatic intracranial tumours of which approximately two-fifths were meningiomas. This report concerns an angioblastic meningioma with a large hepatic metastasis. Cushing's original classification of angioblastic meningiomas and the differential diagnosis between these tumours and the haemangiopericytoma and cerebellar haemangioblastoma are discussed.
